G N Balasubramaniam

gnb

Surely you will tell me that there are plenty of resources on the web with his concerts and that would be perfectly true. I go back to my goal of getting all my recordings on to the cloud (preferably in my own space which I can control), open it up for anyone who wanders to this site and hope they enjoy the recordings.

With so much having been reported about him, It is pointless to say anything about GNB and I will leave it that.
